“GeomCaliper has proven to be an effective and valuable tool in the campaign to keep quality up and costs down. We have integrated GeomCaliper into our design process and it has resulted in a 75% reduction in the time taken to check wall thickness of complex models. At the same time, it is allowing us to discover those hidden critical areas that otherwise may have gone undetected.”
Disher Design and Development
“As an Engineer of plastic injection molded products, consistent wall stock is one variable that does effect part quality and having the ability to quickly analyze 3D models can help reduce product design issues and costly rework. GeomCaliper provides this with its direct interface with CatiaV5 and its ability to analysis an entire model for non-consistent wall stock areas. Since 2005, Disher Design has employed GeomCaliper on every plastic part design to ensure that we have optimized every possible area in our product designs prior to tooling.”
“Geometric has actively contributed towards several successful and high quality releases of our products. As our strategic QA partner, we value Geometric’s technical, functional and QA expertise that has enabled our R&D teams to positively re-align their work on development activities.”
“Geometric played a significant role in the success of PLM implementation at Godrej. Their process-driven approach ensured that we got all the benefits of PLM.”

“We are working with Geometric Limited Engineering Service On-site and Offshore Associates for nearly 4 years. We have found them extremely professional and competent. They have excellent CATIA V5 skills which have been used extensively to support data migration work from legacy CAD system of CATIA V4. They have consistently delivered quality work on-time for both bulk data and on demand delivery models. They have shown consistent improvement in the productivity and the gains achieved were passed on to us on regular basis. They have been working on continuous improvement in the process to improve quality of the deliverables. Their communicating has been simple, effective and has made them extremely easy to interact with.”

“We have used DFMPro from Geometric and have found that it is an easy to use tool, which have helped us to develop analysis not only for assemblies on most of the products we’ve manufactured within Jabil but also to perform and validate that sheet metals or molded parts can be cleaned up in order to receive reliable parts from vendors. Some of this analysis has helped us to identify critical issues during the design stage and also has helped us to design feasible tools for the assembly process.
We are very satisfied with the results obtained with this tool that some of our customers have positioned Jabil on first place compared to other CMs.”

The various components in our products are typically manufactured through injection molding process. Earlier we were using a manual process for DFM reviews which involved using checklists and knowledge from experienced engineers. The process required lot of time from experienced engineers and still was error prone. Also, the designer had difficulties in checking the design for issues related to draft angle, wall thickness etc. due to limitations of the CAD software itself.
With DFMPro our designers are able to detect & correct 80-85% of the issues that they couldn’t detect earlier in the CAD software. Due to this we are able to see a significant improvement of quality levels in the design process. DFMPro has helped us automate the DFM review and making the process a lot convenient. OFIV1Pro has now been implemented as a part of our standard design process.

“From the beginning of tests on GeomCaliper, we found that GeomCaliper was an efficient and high quality solution to the conception work. It is clear that GeomCaliper brings so many advantages if compared to the old way of making thickness analysis. Without GeomCaliper, several sections of the model were created manually along X, Y and Z axes and then some detailed analysis were made locally. Time need for the 2D classical analysis was very important.
GeomCaliper let users make semi-automatic 3D analysis on the entire model. GeomCaliper input data are exactly the same data that are produced from user, no additional pre processing is needed: GeomCaliper directly reads CATIA V5 files! Other kinds of thickness analysis are available too but their utilization in PSA is lower.
GeomCaliper integration in PSA environment has been easy and low cost; its interface with CATIA V5 is good and improved at every new release.”

“Injection molding parts are typically complex and difficult to check manually. Compared to earlier manual methods of checking parts for draft angles, wall thickness and undercuts; DFMPro quickly and accurately identifies such regions. It serves the direct purpose of identifying manufacturability problems right at the design stage and helps reduce design iterations.
It is an easy to use tool which significantly helped us to reduce our part checking time by almost 60% while ensuring robust quality of design.”

“As an innovator, I was looking for a CAM application which I could use to bring my ideas to reality. CAMWORKS did just that for me. It was very easy to learn and I was able to machine parts that were not feasible with other CAM software.”

“Using DFMPro, we were able to reduce our time for checking the product design from the manufacturing feasibility point of view by approximately 90% w.r.t. manual checking. The net reduction in total time for checking of product design by using DFMPro software is approximately 15%.”
Manager, Engineering Department
“Now 3D design data of our products are checked by the DFMPro in the design process. Our conventional checking process by designers was highly time-consuming. In contrast, the DFMPro checking is truly fast and reliable in searching the parts to be redesigned or corrected, and the checking criteria can be customized for the appropriate checking of our own products. As a result, we successfully reduced 75% of the checking time of the wall thickness to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of our design improvement before the release of drawings.”

We have many plastic and sheet metal components in our products. DFMPro helps our designers quickly identify the issues which are otherwise difficult to capture at the design stage. These issues include things like mold wall thickness and undercuts in plastic parts, incorrect bends in sheet metal parts which cause problems downstream. This tool helps our design teams understand the process involved in manufacturing. In other words, helps them understand how to Design for Manufacturing. This leads to a significant reduction in design iterations due to issues with manufacturability and reduction in design checking time. Our aim is to get designs right the first time and this tool helps us to achieve this goal.
